    Jones and Food Rolling Stone magazine lights up Alex Jones. Kinda. It starts off swinging hard. Toward the beginning of the piece: “The Gates Foundation? ‘Obviously a eugenics operation.’ The latest WikiLeaks dump? ‘All the hallmarks of an intelligence disinfo campaign.’ While urging his audience to wake up and smell the police state, Jones can [...]

    Conan: ‘President Obama gave a nationally televised speech about Libya. The speech was titled, “No, I wasn’t born there.’” Kimmel: “President Obama escalated the war in Afghanistan, he sent the Navy in to shoot at pirates in the Indian Ocean, and now he’s attacking Libya. It’s like he took the Nobel Peace Prize as an [...]

    C.S. Lewis was a very good debater. He wasn’t as viciously clever as Belloc, nor as disarmingly effective as Chesterton, but he was good. They say he never lost a debate while at Oxford. Until he ran into Elizabeth Anscombe. Accounts vary. Some say she shredded Lewis; others say it was mostly a draw, with [...]

    More Hans Hans-Hermann Hoppe might be the most original thinker on the face of the earth today. Over the weekend, I found this lengthy interview with him. I have only grazed it, but I have downloaded it for close reading later. I’ve already spotted gems, like this one: “Under monarchy, the distinction between rulers and [...]

    Drunk Dating What’s the hardest part of giving up drinking? The buzz? The relaxation? The good times? The taste? Nope. If you’re single, it’s the difficulty of dating, according to this guy. When I was dating, I routinely drank beforehand for two reasons: (1) I drank pretty much every evening, and I saw no reason [...]

    Silver and Bullets Did you catch the silver bullet before it pulled out of the station? Silver is at $37.83 an ounce. It opened at $35.90 Tuesday morning. Last week, it was trading below $34.50. No matter. My sources predict a consolidation in the next few months. Expect a drop, they say, after the quarter-end [...]

    The Ruling Class You’ve seen cyber-lists about the horrible state of the U.S. economy. This site has taken the exercise one step further: it has juxtaposed fourteen financial facts about the Ruling Class against fourteen financial facts about the Subjected. Some of the facts take cheap shots, but for the most part, it’s a revealing [...]

    "The Daily Eudemon is the sort of thing that Chesterton or Mencken would be doing, if they were alive today. It's what, in saner times, was called journalism. In the writing and in the reading, it's exactly the sort of leisure we should want at the basis of culture."
    Mike Aquilina, Author of The Fathers of the Church and TV Talk Show Host.

    "Literate Catholicism-urbane, witty, engaged-is alive and well! If you can read, you should be reading The Daily Eudemon!" David Scott, author of A Revolution of Love: The Meaning of Mother Teresa

    "If you like your blogs pithy, nimble, pointed, high-spirited, and waggish, then bookmmark Eric Scheske's The Daily Eudemon. Ooops! You want prolixity, density, meandering, dull, and sober? Then run (do not walk!) to the blogs of the major news outlets. They have just what you want. Honestly they do." John Peterson, Editor, G.K. Chesterton: Collected Works, Volumes 12 and 13.

    "Eric Scheske's web site is full of information and insight.  Always worth a read."  James V. Schall, Author of Another Sort of Learning.

    "Eric Scheske has one of the few indispensable sites in an overcrowded blogosphere." Thomas E. Woods, Jr., Ph.D., New York Times Bestselling Author and Author of How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization.
